Is Apocalypse supposed to stop Jabari Panther's Cleanse?

Self-explanatory title. Feel like Jabari shouldn't be able to purify stun debuffs....and yet, here we are.

    No, cleanse is a new mechanic, not a purify

    I think it is kind of like nullify and stagger. Some nodes give champions resistance to nullify, but you can still stagger the buffs. Cleanse is like stagger, so apoc cannot bypass that unlike normal purify.

    Stagger IS nullify
    Hopefully, one of the mods can give an inpiut.

    I'm pretty sure Cleanse is more like Tigra's Neutralize. It blocks all buffs on the opponent regardless of Nullify/Stagger immunity or resistance and doesn't count as a Nullify or Stagger for any nodes.

    I'd bank on her description being changed and not the actual gameplay interaction.

    It's annoying when they do things like that, but that's probably what's going to happen. Something like "her purifying cleanse is classified as a shrugification that purifies so is immune to his purification immunity" to make it as clear as mud.

    Apocalypse's spotlight states this:


    Jabari's spotlight states this:


    Based on their descriptions, Cleanse is a passive ability that hangs around, waiting to Purify something.

    However: is that actually the intention/in-game effect? I haven't fought her yet, so I'm not aware: the question is, does a debuff icon briefly appear?

    If a debuff icon momentarily appears, and is removed, then Cleanse is acting as a Purify ability and should be blocked by Apocalypse (and Stun passives should be inflicted by Storm-PX).

    If no debuff icon ever appears in the first place, then Cleanse is acting as a Prevent ability, and (arguably) shouldn't be blocked by Apocalypse.

    If that's the case, they just need to change the analogy to Cleanse being like Neutralise instead of Stagger.

    Thing is immune to Stagger; but his buffs are still prevented by Neutralise.

    I think the the problem with the analogy is that it's like both neutralize and stagger. the mechanic seems to work like neutralize in that effect never happens, but it's like stagger because it gets consumed once it prevents it, whereas neutralize stays on even after preventing a buff until it times out on its own. they compared it to stagger to get that consumption part across but at the disservice of the description of the actual mechanic

    I know right, it’s like the Cannot beats always unless it’s a newer ability that overrides all previous interactions lol. Thus creating 100 more future bugs due to complex coding problems.

    Storm PX does work as I used her to beat Jabari in the monthly quest and her parry worked fine, Magneto(x) pre-fight also works.

    After fighting her twice, I can confirm she is very briefly stunned and it is subsequently removed. You can hear the little jingle of her being stunned before it is quickly 'cleansed'.

    I rinsed her with Apoc, had 90 percent health left, Cav difficulty.

    While it is a new mechanic it says it purifies debuffs. So everyone wins this one.

    can an actual mod answer this?

    also does sabre's 100%daar from km synergy work for her?

    'by Purifying Debuffs'

    So...you're confirming we're right...?
    With the NEW CLEANSE MECHANIC

    Angela can still be staggered and have her buffs nullified with 3 buffs and max sig. This cleanse mechanic seems to function exactly like that.

    IMO. They will change purifies to removes, since they stated that it is meant to be like stagger. The description is clear with its intent, and The mechanic was most likely developed with avoiding an apocalypse type ability in mind. Much like bpcw and mordo shaking off stuns in their own ways.

    This is a valid point and if a mod could clarify or confirm on jabroni panther purifying Apoc debuffs that’d be cool. Not gonna lie it’d be pretty uncool to create a champ that can shut down purify and then create another purify mechanic that is a different name.

    It's almost like champs get released with abilities and then other champs that counter those abilities come into the game by design or something.

    Just use Storm pyramid X and thank me later...

    Look I hear ya there has to be counters but maybe a tech that is designed to counter Apoc’s ability, not another skill champ that purifies just called a different name but same utility in practicality.
